Contact: Bob Meola (510) 644-1102 feel, there wide range things, that can talked about, among this panel, the next six months.
Another topic, the February, regional BAUASI approval authority meeting, few the approval board members, tried seriously question, how NCRIC was using some funds, from
UASI this time. NCRIC representative, offered some answers, that were slightly questionable, and fairly good example, the shell game, that can on, government funding. few, BAUASI approval authority board members, seemed bit perturbed. few people, the approval board asked, what exactly the public oversight oversight process, for
NCRIC. some basic research, part, the BAUASI, regional authority approval meeting, itself, that has
major part, offer and create, public oversight process, for NCRIC.
The NCRIC items, the regional BAUASI public agenda, for April 13, 21017, example, federal
government, trying fulfill its purpose, public oversight for NCRIC. question, there are other ways, other avenues, for NCRIC public process, take place. open, review process, every six months, with the elected board members, NCRIC, and structured,
local follow up, lead-into, public meetings, could one way, there can better public oversight.
And, way better understand, not only the purposes and uses, NCRIC technology, but
understand the financing NCRIC, and its technologies, year after year, well. final thought,
The April 13, 2017, the april, BAUASI meeting, should the annual time, that local city and county
projects, have some final public scrutiny, before approval, the BAUASI regional authority board. hope BAUASI, can very open the public, with local city projects and funding, this time.

Mayor Arreguin has come for criticism for what some regard inadequate response violent protests
April 15. Arreguin said supports the new tactics used police and claimed that they were challenged when
hundreds protesters turned out for pro-Trump Patriots Day rally and anti-Trump protest. The police
took very careful, very thoughtful approach, Arreguin said. They couldve moved very aggressively, and
that definitely wouldve escalated things.
Arreguin said the police chief used new strategies, which included erecting fencing Martin Luther King park,
where much the action took place, that restricted access. Police also enforced policy that weapons would
not allowed the park. Police confiscated numerous weapons, including knives, sticks, pepper spray, and
clubs. Pro-Trump and anti-Trump protesters engaged fisticuffs and other violence. Arrests were made for
felonious assault. Twenty persons were arrested result the affray.
However, not all the violence that day was between Antifa anti-Trump leftists and pro-Trump protesters.
According commenters the Reddit website, some Antifa members assaulted innocent observers.
Commenters called Mayor Arreguin, arguing that his response rioters was inadequate. They anarchists
actions led violence spinning out control. commenter Reddit r/Berkeley page described assault and robbery bystander masked Antifa

CONSENT CALENDAR
March 28, 2017
To: Honorable Members the City Council
From: Mayor Jesse Arregu and Councilmember
Sophie Hahn
Subject: Support for the Investigation Impeach
President Donald Trump
RECOMMENDATION
Adopt Resolution supporting investigation into
the impeachment President Donald Trump and
sending copy the Resolution
Congresswoman Barbara Lee.
BACKGROUND
The past couple months the Trump
Administration have been mired scandal,
lawsuits, and controversy. the first two weeks
alone, lawsuits were filed against
the President (compared lawsuits for the last
three Presidents combined during
the same period). Polling suggests that the nation
evenly split whether not the
President should impeached. Locally, the City
Richmond passed Resolution
support impeachment, and the City Alameda
discussing this proposal. Below
sample the many Constitutional violations and
abuses committed the Trump
Administration.
The Emoluments Clause
Article Section Clause the Constitution
states that Person holding any
Office Profit Trust under [the United States]
shall, without the Consent the
Congress, accept any present, Emolument,
Office, Title, any kind whatever,
from any King, Prince, foreign State. Known
the Emoluments Clause, this was
written prevent elected officials from being bribed foreign governments.
emolument overarching term, covering financial
benefits such monetary
payments, purchase goods and services,
subsidies, and tax breaks. business owner international corporation,
Donald Trump had been alerted
potential violations the Constitution legal
scholars long before assumed the
presidency. His efforts stay out day-to-day
operations his company not far
enough preventing emoluments from foreign
governments. Just days after being
sworn in, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics
Washington filed lawsuit against
President Trump for violations the Emoluments
Clause.
Threats Cut Federal Funding major campaign promise, which rife with legal
questions his promise eliminate
federal funding Sanctuary Cities. The President
has legal authority unilaterally
cut funding cities states, this would need
approval from Congress. Additionally,
the federal government can only strip funding that
related the policy involved.
Additionally, the federal government cannot use
threats cuts form coercion for
making entities comply with the demands the
federal government.
Despite multiple case law explicitly expressing the
limitations funding cuts that the
President federal government can make, this has
not stopped President Trump from
making such threats. executive order was signed
that paves the way cutting funds
from Sanctuary Cities, which Berkeley identifies as.
Separately, President Trump made threat Twitter cut all federal funding
Berkeley.
Russian Communications
During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump held
press conference where explicitly
called upon Russian hackers target Hillary
Clinton emails. Documents from the
Democratic Party were leaked what
intelligence agencies report have come
from Russia. the same time, Trump then
campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was
accused accepting millions dollars for
representing Russian interests the
Ukraine and United States.
During the Trump Presidency, was revealed that
least two top officials that were
nominated/appointed Trump had communications
with Russians during the election.
National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn
was forced resign after emerged had lied about the content his conversations
with Russian Ambassador the
Sergei Kislyak. More recently, Attorney General Jeff
Sessions lied testimony under
oath whether had communications with
Russian authorities during the 2016
election.
Undermining Freedom the Press prominent feature the First Amendment the
Freedom Press. But the media has
been consistently oppressed and undermined
Donald Trump both the campaign
and his Presidency. From insulting and mocking
journalists with disabilities describing
any media outlet that does their journalist duties
asking the tough questions fake
news Trump has continuously made attempts
silence and discredit the media.
What more alarming President Trump
repeated accusations the media being
the enemy the American people. February 24,
major media outlets including the
New York Times, CNN, and BBC, were barred from
attending press briefing.
National Security Risks
While there may nothing legally wrong with
President Trump lack attendance
security briefings, does raise concerns about the
President ability handle
international crises. The use Twitter medium
for communication off-the-cuff
comments have raised eyebrows multiple
countries, including Mexico, Australia,
Sweden, and China. Such diplomatic hiccups
weaken the standing the
international community. potential breach national security took place
during open meeting between
President Trump and Japanese Prime Minister
Shinzo Abe Trump Mar-A-Lago
Resort. Both leaders were notified missile
launch North Korea front guests
instead private, confidential setting, potentially
compromising details regarding
national security incident.
Abuse Executive Powers multiple occasions, President Trump has used
his powers bully pulpit. His
comments that millions Americans voted illegally the 2016 election without being
able provide single shred evidence back
such ludicrous claims serves only undermine the democratic process.
When the check and balances American
government went into play when the courts
overturned executive order banning travel from
seven Muslim-majority countries,
President Trump lashed out against the judicial
branch and attempted discredit the
judges and ruling. When did not get his way,
instead circumnavigated the system signing very similar executive order.
FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
None.
ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY adverse effects the environment.

http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Trump supporters planning take the streets 10969282.php Africa? have military deployed over 150 countries. How many countries are there? asked
Daniel Saint the Charlottesville chapter Veterans For Peace. President Obama, his last State
the Union Address, proudly claimed that the United States spends more than the next eight countries
combined--China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, France, United Kingdom, India, Germany, and Japan.
Combined! Now Trump wants dramatically expand adding another $54 billion. costs $12 thousand drill well bringing fresh water village with clean source drinking water. For just the budget
increase proposed Trump, could provide 4.5 million new wells across Africa, India and Latin
America. Imagine children from around the world grew with vision the United States
bringing clean drinking water rather than bomb fragments stamped made the USA. Would our
children and grandchildren safer with new fresh wells more nuclear weapons?
Indivisible Charlottesville, along with thousands Indivisible organizations across America,
committed resisting the Trump administrations efforts reverse the progress the last century, and building diverse country that can face the challenges the next one, said David Singerman.
Trump plans destroy the programs that let Virginians drink clean water, breathe clean air, live
affordable housing, attend some the worlds best universities, and sleep without fear chemical and
industrial accidents. would this order pile money into whats already the strongest military
history, and order cruelly build walls across our borders and end aid programs that give succor
the most vulnerable people the world.
Not only the military the wrong place put more money, said David Swanson, director World
Beyond War, but nobody can even say where all that money goes. The Department so-called
Defense, which President Trump says has created hornets nest the Middle East, the one
department never audited. have known for many years that the Departments business practices are archaic and wasteful,
and its inability pass clean audit longstanding travesty, Chairs John McCain (R-AZ) and Mac
Thornberry (R-TX) the Senate and House Armed Services Committees said recently joint
statement. The reason these problems persist simple: failure leadership and lack
accountability. can stop Muslim ban, added Swanson, can stop immoral budget too! CNN poll March 1-4 asked for opinions this proposal: Increase military spending cutting
funding for the State Department, Environmental Protection Agency and other non-defense agencies.
Nationally, 58% disapproved, and 41% approved.
Charlottesville provides example how federal budget priorities are out line with popular opinion.
Using the calculations the National Priorities Project CostofWar.com, Every hour, taxpayers
Charlottesville, Virginia are paying $12,258 for Department Defense 2016. Thats $107.4 million year. Much military spending other departments. The National Priorities Project provides the
numbers for few them: $4.1 million from Charlottesville for nuclear weapons, $2.6 million for
weapons for foreign governments, $12.6 million for homeland security, and $6.9 million for the 2016
off-the-books extra slush fund. Thats $133.6 million, not counting various other expenses, and not
counting the extra $54 billion additional $30 billion, which would bring the cost Charlottesville another $16 million $149.6 million.
According National Priorities Project, that enough money provide 1,850 Elementary School
Teachers for Year, 2,019 Clean Energy Jobs Created for Year, 2,692 Infrastructure Jobs
Created for Year, 1,496 Jobs with Supports Created High Poverty Communities for Year,
16,788 Head Start Slots for Children for Year, 14,479 Military Veterans Receiving Medical Care
for Year, 4,504 Scholarships for University Students for Years, 6,431 Students Receiving Pell
Grants $5,815 for Years, 63,103 Children Receiving Low-Income Healthcare for Year,
168,519 Households with Wind Power for Year, 42,024 Adults Receiving Low-Income Healthcare
for Year, 104,093 Households with Solar Electricity for Year. Each these items more than
Charlottesville, which does not have 104,093 households, could possibly use.

tried speak Berkeley recently. Mr. Yiannopoulos speech was shut down before could happen, but
rioters did $100,000 worth damage the campus anyway, because campus police intentionally did little
stop them. Even when the rioters moved off the campus and rampaged through other parts town,
destroying property, they seem have met with little resistance, judging the amount damage
buildings Shattuck. (My own bank, Wells Fargo, had windows and ATMs broken.) The antifa and black
block participants from that action counted their riot huge success, therefore seems probable that
the same troublemakers, and possibly others hostile Mr. McInnis, will use the March free speech event excuse once again assault strangers and vandalize destroy property: smashing windows and ATMs,
keying cars, setting fires,throwing stones, blocking thoroughfares, sucker punching random individuals, and
generally creating mayhem. All this easily foreseen, given that local forces hostile Mr. McInnis are
already using social media plan disruptive actions.

Air pollution grants big cities, programs clean trash and pollutants from waters the
Mexican border and efforts cut diesel emissions would all discontinued. addition, climate
protection programs would cut percent, and dozens programs reduce lead drinking
water, clean marine pollution and fix leaking underground storage tanks, would slashed.
The 23-page directive the EPA part President Trump formulation his first budget,
expected the week March 13. Other domestic agencies are bracing for deep cuts well.
The administration 2018 budget blueprint will prioritize rebuilding the military and making
critical investments the nation security, the budget agency document says. will also identify
the savings and efficiencies needed keep the nation responsible fiscal path.
The document said the cuts would help pay for Trump proposed $54 billion increase military
and homeland security spending. Defense spending currently $598.5 billion, and the EPA budget $8.2 billion, with the proposed cuts totaling roughly billion.
During the campaign, Trump had promised cuts that would leave only little tidbits the EPA.
Congress has final authority over the budget, however, and the administration plans are likely
meet bipartisan resistance.
Neither the White House nor the EPA responded request for comment. EPA
Administrator Scott Pruitt, former Oklahoma attorney general who has questioned climate science
and sued the agency now manages, told the nation mayors Thursday that the budget process
just starting and that wanted defend several agency programs, including water infrastructure
and local grant programs. don know whether laugh cry, responded Warner Chabot, executive director
the San Francisco Estuary Institute, science think tank. suggest that Pruitt going
advocate for local government and environmental protection beyond belief. addition San Francisco Bay, the budget all but eliminates big watershed restoration programs
for the Great Lakes, Chesapeake Bay, Puget Sound and South Florida. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, DCalif., was instrumental creating the $4.8 million program for San Francisco, far the smallest
these the Great Lakes program gets $300 million year. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., called
the Great Lakes cuts outrageous.
The San Francisco program, called the S.F. Bay Water Quality Improvement Fund, helped
restore the old Cargill salt ponds the South Bay, creating tidal marshes and new wetlands. The total
cost the 50-year project expected billion, paid with local and state funds that rely
federal match. Bay Area voters last year easily approved Measure AA, $12-a-year parcel tax covering
all nine counties raise $500 million restoration funds.
Officials said restoring bay wetlands vital protecting South Bay cities such San Jose, part
which was inundated two weeks ago, from future flooding. much percent the bay
wetlands have been lost development, exposing the shoreline storm surges, destroying wildlife
habitat and degrading water quality.
The salt ponds restoration essential part our adaptation climate change and rising sea
levels, said Brenda Buxton, deputy regional manager for the California Coastal Conservancy,
sister state agency the Coastal Commission that oversees projects protect the coast and its
watersheds. need restore the wetlands and restore them fast possibly can, they are there for when need them, Buxton said. the weather gets weirder and get bigger storms, need have time for the sediment come and the plants grow have them function. feel real
sense urgency.
The San Francisco clapper rail and the salt marsh harvest mouse, both which live only the
bay, will probably become extinct without further restoration, she said.
Feinstein has taken keen personal interest the salt ponds, leveraging her senior position
the Senate Appropriations Committee establish and fund the restoration program.
What frustrating the restoration dollars further the Bay Area than anywhere else the
nation, because strong local funding, said Adrian Covert, vice president the Bay Area
Council business group. 2015 council study showed that the bay, especially Santa Clara County,
home Silicon Valley, vulnerable much $10 billion damage from big storm.
That about the same the Loma Prieta earthquake, Covert said. Federal taxpayers pick
much the cost such disasters.
While cuts the wetlands programs could harm waterways, there are fears that reductions
pollution programs will harm public health. can guarantee with certainty that least the air pollution area, there will many more
people who will die prematurely and tens thousands, perhaps millions more, who will get sick
unnecessarily, the cuts prevail, said William Becker, executive director the National
Association Clean Air Agencies, nonpartisan association local air pollution agencies.
Becker said the cuts will have direct and serious adverse health impact almost every major
metropolitan area the country.
Neither Feinstein office, which waiting for the formal budget proposal, nor the governor
office offered comment.
Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Oakland, had something say Twitter:

system has failed winning any popular support. The public schools are still regarded treasured achievement. why has the attack been allowed forward? The answer simple. Our union
leadership believes that our union only hope lies our ability suck the powers
that be. They assume this long period labor quiescence that they have created,
established beyond doubt that the unions and the other movements and organizations
the oppressed are too weak win. They confuse their loyalty and desperate subservience the Democrats with clever strategy that will somehow, someday restore the American
middle class. Van Roekel and company believe honor the tip the tail the
Democratic Party. They believe this the only prudent strategy for our union follow
and they are wrong every count.
BAMN believes the exact opposite. believe that our union strong. believe that
the rich and powerful are not the only force that can make and change history. The years supplication have achieved nothing. Despite all the mass layoffs, blows seniority and
tenure and attacks academic freedom have had weather, our union remains the
strongest force the battle defend public education. stop carrying out the losing
policy relying solely electoral politics and unquestioningly handing over tens
millions dollars the Democrats, can powerful enough reverse the losses
have suffered. But must act. must bold. And must stop avoiding using the
most powerful weapons have our arsenal, the ability strike and call mass
actions the street. call our union leadership for mass mobilizations would moralize
hundreds thousands teachers, our students, the Latina/o, black and immigrant
communities that are chafing under the new Jim Crow, and all those who are tired
being disappointed the failures the Democrats and are just itching for fight.
you elect BAMN, pledge turn our union back into union and give every teacher
who can not stand what happening and public education the opportunity assert
our power, restore our dignity and finally fight win.
BAMN pledges tell the truth. Four years Arne Duncan trying create parallel,
stratified non-union system charter schools counter-posed public education have
failed achieve anything but the denial public education millions black, Latina/o
and immigrant students. Race the Top has been abject failure any measure, and transparently aimed demoralizing teachers, and destroying union gains. pledge every thing our power get rid Arne Duncan. will not let President Obama
confuse our endorsement him with vow silence. will fight get our union
put demands the Democrats and make clear have independent agenda that
are fighting for which will not subordinate any misguided electoral strategy.
There new movement fighting for public education campuses and communities
across the nation. BAMN has led student struggles defend higher education
campuses and across the country. have championed and helped organize the Latina/o
and immigrant communities fight for the DREAM Act, and path citizenship, and
equality. teach students predominantly black and Latina/o schools and have had the
pleasure and honor walking out and occupying with them cities across the country. have prevented the firing pro-student and anti-racist teachers and even principals
and led successful campaigns save art and music programs and stop school closings.
The issues that are driving people out teaching overcrowded classes, bad pay, job
insecurity, academic freedom vs. being forced teach the test, pensions and benefits
are all subject bargaining. can stop the implementation these attacks through
aggressive contract fights. need national leadership and leaderships our local
organizations across the country that are prepared call and lead strikes victory. students and the community will support us. Hundreds thousands will
embrace the chance join us.
Martin Luther King old civil rights movement always acted independently the
Democrats, repeatedly defying the pleas President Kennedy and Johnson stop
fighting, and because did so, the Dixiecrat wing the Democratic Party was initially
weakened, then forced renounce its own positions, and finally driven out the Party. need this kind fightback again now the policies the current administration and
the Democratic Party every level government will continue unchanged. The attacks
will continue despite their deep unpopularity. Public education will subject further
attack and the New Jim Crow will deepen for black and Latino students and communities.
Our union and members will subject ongoing offensive the politicians and
billionaires. exert the power the mass union and civil rights movement avoid this absolutely
unnecessary road and open path hope for our students; win better contracts and
conditions for our members, and strengthen the AFT and entire labor movement. The
BAMN caucus committed building this perspective. BAMN slate candidates are
committed being leaders who refuse bow the rich and powerful.

Dear Members the Berkeley City Council, our understanding that the City Manager preparing appoint Andrew Greenwood the
new permanent Chief Police for the city Berkeley. While appreciate that well liked
the City Manager and many officers, believe that the appointment chief requires process
that includes soliciting input from the people Berkeley.
The proposed hire has been done without the benefit hiring committee, feedback any kind from
the public any input from the Police Review Commission. For position that commands such
power and influence over the quality life Berkeley and that accountable only the City
Manager, especially crucial that there transparent process into which the people Berkeley
can include their comments. the City Council wants the people Berkeley trust and support
new chief, then wise withhold your approval this hire until process for making this hire can created and communicated throughout the city.
This more than simply choosing chief. about choosing direction for our city plan for safety
and approach emergency services. Will the new chief continue down the path militarization
the force will choose chief who has demonstrated concern for community relations and local
input and control? Surely this time our nation history, important take serious look
where want and hire people and direct resources that can support the chosen course. also believe that there should plan for evaluating the chief. This process evaluation should clearly stated and approved the City Council. should account for input from stakeholders
including the public and the PRC. Clear objectives and measures should place part the
evaluation.

They risk revealing revealing emails and documents about CBRE and other topics. Judge Alsup made this clear.
CBRE could sue prevent these documents from being revealed, making the lawsuit take even longer than
proposed Judge Alsup currently. The Postal Service knows that even they win they could still face the NEPA court battle before they
could sell. Additionally, reasonable interpretation the courts order the previous lawsuit suggests that
the Postal Service wishes sell they?d have through the entire public process again public hearings and
appeals. non-controversial sale the City would expedite that process. The Postal Service case not strong. Judge Alsup made clear that motion for summary judgement
would not succeed. Our case that the Overlay Ordinance was not solely about the Post Office Building solid; believe such documented the public record. one knows how judge will rule, course, but

Principles and Positions the Downtown Berkeley Post Office and the Postal
Services Lawsuit contesting the Zoning Overlay Ordinance.
Principles: The people Berkeley care much now about the downtown Post Office building they did the time
the sale was proposed and Zoning Overlay Ordinance conceived. never gave in, wont now. Neither the building nor the Postal Service should privatized. The building belongs the people, who
long ago paid for it. The existing location ideal for postal services and such services must stay there; anything, services that
have been removed should brought back part any deal. Before making any decisions, the state the building terms seismic issues and cost retrofit, and its
general condition must ascertained, and independent assessment its value determined, and the public informed.
Positions: The above understood, hold with the following: Given the dangers that Trump Administration poses, and the lack any will the part the non-existent
Postal Service Board Directors improve and expand services, the building may well better off owned
the City Berkeley than left (possibly privatized) Postal Service. The City Berkeley has many potential uses for the excess space the building, including City Council

risk revealing revealing emails and documents about CBRE and other topics. Judge Alsup made this clear. CBRE
could sue prevent these documents from being revealed, making the lawsuit take even longer than
proposed Judge Alsup currently. The Postal Service knows that even they win they could still face the NEPA court battle before they
could sell. Additionally, reasonable interpretation the courts order the previous lawsuit suggests that
the Postal Service wishes sell they have through the entire public process again public hearings and
appeals. non-controversial sale the City would expedite that process. The Postal Service case not strong. Judge Alsup made clear that motion for summary judgement

stand good chance winning the case outright having the case settled favorably once clear the

crowd thinned last time, finally, after having stood the sidelines for the 1st hours too far
away observe weapons aggressions. asked why they stood far away and was told that
itd too dangerous for them closer unless they had many more forces. Ha! They were
numerous and were wearing helmets and equipped clubs, tear gas, etc. Brave
reporters/journalists were the thick without police protection bodyguards and without
riot gear, were some activists. stayed the outskirts, but much closer than the cops, and
did prevent couple fights using CLARA technique which training got the launch
Occupy DC.) hope they arrested fewer local activists than out town tRumpers last
time? tRumpers were far the most violent. The only arrest witnessed was Black BHS
junior who had weapon but was emotional powder keg, upset racism and misogyny.
hope they just took him home.
Jesse said stay away last time. were just tRump supporters ranting, agree that
should stay away this time and ignore them. But Any Means Necessary and some the
black bloc folks (whether genuine posers) provoke them again, makes for very bad press
and may inflame the racist/homophobic fascists return larger numbers next time. The best
opposition may let them have their say, long theyre non-violent, and/or stand
dignified witness and also make fun-loving show what Berkeley stands for peace, free
speech, diversity, creativity, justice not prejudice.
The main thing prevent injuries. Were lucky that injuries werent more serious last
time. And dont malign the black bloc. Tho they have their bad apples, and provocateurs take
advantage the (tear gas protection) bandana look regrettably, most were and, usual, they
also provided the medics last time. How about those pastel bloc
genderettes? https://www.facebook.com/PastelBloc/ dont like masks, but the way things are
going, cant blame some protesters for avoiding face recognition technology.
This was the 1st time had avoid tear gas and pepper spray not only from the cops but from
two the protesting factions. Dont let scare you off. wasnt hard avoid it.
